Morgan Rector's insight:

Morgan Rector <morgan.rector2@gmail.com>Mar 1 (4 days ago) to amfabe    Hello! My name is Morgan Rector and I go to Penn Trafford High School in Pittsburgh Pa. Katie Lawther referred you to me for my researched project. My project is on teen depression and how their peers can cause it or make it worse. It is along the lines of bullying effects but I believe some people can just have small jokes that may effect someone more than one would think, so I wouldn't consider that bullying. Katie told me you work with psychology and I was wondering if I could ask you a few questions for my project. I would love to to see a professionals imput in my project along with an outside, adults point of view. Thank you for your time!

Social Envy - Study Finds Facebook Causes Depression And Isolation

Social Envy - Study Finds Facebook Causes Depression And Isolation | Depression bullying | Scoop.it

Researchers have conducted tests that show that people who spend a lot of time scrolling on Facebook are more socially isolated and more frequently depressed than those who do not.

 

The question, of course, poses itself: are lonely people more drawn to social networks – or does constant surfing result in loneliness over time?

With teenagers being so into Facebook and Twitter, I want to show that it could have a really negative effect on your life style. People are always so hurt by what others say and do on social networking and it could lead them into a state of depression. Since you cannot see the person you are harming they dont know how badly the really are affecting them.
Arielle Mendelson's curator insight, May 24, 2013 2:08 PM

The question is, do lonely people turn to social media or does social media make people lonely? 

The people who spend the most amount of time on social media have more feelings of isolation and depression than those who go on it for a quick look. People say the main reason they feel lonely after looking at Facebook is because of envy and the second reason is because of lack of responses. This has become such a large issue and has led to research being done because Facebook is used worldwide and anyone can feel envy. 

SP-Index's curator insight, May 27, 2014 12:02 PM

Could your employees be depressed or isolated because of their over use of social networks. Being able to identify pockets of low morale in your business is crucial for future success. Social isolation manifesting itself as a Facebook profile is not going to add any value to your customers, colleagues, suppliers, or brand. You can use SP Index to be more aware of your employees use of the web in order to offer support, education and improvements.

One big thing I want to get across is that Depression is a health problem caused by the body itself. We do not consciously create depression for ourselves but it is rather created by a problem in the brain itself. A big controversy is that depression is a made up disease and I would like to prove those who believe that wrong.

Many people believe depression can be hereditary. I believe it is important for us to figure out if it is or not because this can help us diagnose future teens and hopefully catch it before its too late. If parents understand that their child may have a better chance for it, they may be able to help them prevent it.

Brain Scientists Uncover New Links Between Stress And Depression

Brain Scientists Uncover New Links Between Stress And Depression | Depression bullying | Scoop.it

Even extreme stress doesn't have to get you down.

 

That's the message from brain scientists studying the relationship between stress and problems such as depression, anxiety and post traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD.

 

Researchers at the Society for Neuroscience meeting in New Orleans presented studies showing how stress caused by everything from battlefield trauma to bullying can alter brain circuitry in ways that have long-term effects on mental health.

 

Current treatments for these problems often come up short. But the scientists say new insights about how stress affects the brain suggest several ways the process could be interrupted or reversed.

This article really helps me because it helps prove depression as a fact instead of an opinion based diagnosis. Studies like this can help get my point across that depression is not just "in your head" but can be caused by the body itself. Better ways of testing for it like a blood test will help better diagnose and treat a patient.
